"What he's done is very impressive in this day and age to do the way he does it. Kei is one of the greatest shot-makers the game has ever seen and there's no reason he can't go on further."

Federer fans laud Fed's era as having strong opponents such as Safin, Haas, Nalbandian, and Hewitt. Yet, they were constantly injured, disinterested, and borderline sociopathic
(Safin's infamous racket breaks, Haas's tendency to have conversations berating himself on live television, and Nalbandian physically assaulting line judges

Federer's peak is supposedly in 2004-2007, but his best grass match was WI 2009 final, his best hard court match was WTF 2010 final, and his best clay match was RG 2011 SF

34 year old Agassi took peak Federer to 5 sets at U.S Open but any problem cannot be found? GOAT argument
20 y.o. Djokovic straight setted prime Federer at Aus. Open but any problem cannot be found? GOAT argument

No doubt about it for me. Of course, it looks a little disingenuous that it comes on the back of their exo, and loses lustre coming from Agassi the rent-a-gob and drug cheat....but he's not wrong here.

And ............the kiss of death. Agassi is such an attention-w****. To this guy, every new person in tennis is the best ever. Heck, Tomic will be the next best GOAT after he wins a match

Only in the minds of some really frustrated Ferrer fans really. I assume the people in question stopped watching tennis in the meantime after all the continuing embarrassment Kei has been putting them through, but "Pushikori" was actually a thing on MTF last year

No Agassi is on meth for saying that a guy #5 in the world can win a slam?

Maybe the one of the best shotmakers ever was a bit ridiculous but ask Djokovic and Federer how good of a shotmaker Kei is

No lies detected

But still, I think the IMPLICATIONS are a lot greater than the actual statement....which makes it a questionable statement.

He isn't one of the "greatest ever" shotmakers but its not total nonsense either.
